Where my garden keeps getting flooded is planted with rather a lot of Hemerocallis or Day Lilies. I hadn’t realised when I planted them many years ago, that they liked water so much. They spent most of the winter sitting with their roots in water and lately I seem to have been flooded regularly, almost every week, and they are looking very happy indeed! I also have lots planted in parts of the garden that don’t get flooded and they too seem very happy. I showed 3 varieties in my last post, but now most of the rest are flowering so here they are, but I have forgotten most of their names over the years.
These, along with the ones in the previous post, are all the day lilies flowering at the moment. Even though each flower only last for one day, the clumps have now increased so much that usually it is at least a month before all the buds have opened. I do go round deadheading them each morning as I feel it makes them look a lot better, but that is a very quick job with my early morning cup of tea!
